  • All you can do is laugh!

    I am playing $3.50 9 man's and in my last 53 games I have only lost 10 buy ins and finished 4th 19 times and this was just the latest! Enjoy.

    Oh and my 3 opponents are a -$465 combined over 800+ games since start of the year.

    weaktight | Hand | 88 - No Limit Holdem Tournament
    weaktight | Hand | AJs - No Limit Holdem Tournament

    These bad streaks happen folks and you just have to keep playing through them.

    Giddy Up!

    Thx for sharing the full picture Cowboy I guess you've been on this roller coaster before, eh? So it's something you're able to take in stride? So funny, I was giving $3.50 6-max turbos a go, and a whole year ago I was break-even on those, even before I found the video library and learned about position. And I just played like 10 of them and didn't come first in one. It was like I got way better but was doing way worse I guess the variance can be quite extreme and prolonged, eh, and it's just something I guess we need to learn to take in stride, eh? umbup:
